Vice President Biden: No Legal Issue With Violent Video Game Tax

Posted on Wednesday, May 15 @ 08:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


United States vice president Joe Biden believes there's no legal issue in instituting a tax on violent video games.

According to Politico, Biden's statement was made at a gun legislation meeting in response to Reverend Franklin Graham, who suggested that such games should be taxed. The vice president told Graham that there's “no restriction on the ability to do that, there’s no legal reason why they couldn't." 

Graham went on to suggest that the tax money could then go to gun violence victims and their families.

What do you think of such a tax? Is a move like this simply going too far? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
